Stuart Briber - Quarknet Teacher

I came to the Quarknet program 10 years ago as a physics and engineering teacher at Independence High School in San Jose. I enjoy working with the small group of Quarknet students as a way to move into science in a new way beyond the classroom. I have a background before teaching as a forensics expert in physics investigating evidence at crime and accident scenes to learn the story of what transpired, I find the Quarknet program to be a little like forensics since students are called on to develop their own experiments and pursue a line of evidence to try to determine the truth about an idea they adopt about particle physics. Forensics is an excellent example of the scientific method, so is the work done produced by our students.
